To see what the driver is doing to your escapes, try:

    => "$test"


    => "\\$test"

Unfortunately, the latter may be confusing.  The key is to keep in mind that
when it hits the regular expression matcher, \\ is only \.  I'm going to
poke through the code some more to see if there is simply a step left out
in the match regexp function, which would correctly frob the string...
